Newcastle Parkrun - 21st April
On a lovely day at Newcastle Town Moor it was Jesmond Joggers' Michael Hedley who was triumphant in a time of 17.16 while regular Parkrunner Alison Dargie from Elswick won the ladies race in 18.51.
It wasn't just the tough course and the wind that Hedley had to deal with to gain his 36 second victory, it was the screams of the local ladies as 2nd placed Chris Baber from Tynedale decided to run the race topless!
Dargie came home more than 2 minutes ahead of her nearest rival.
There was a good turnout of almost 300 on a sunny morning as this Parkrun event goes from strength to strength.
A well organised, friendly event. Well done to everyone that took part.
